Delivery Information

 All items in stock will be delivered within 3 working days from receipt of order. Items that are not in stock will be placed on backorder and sent to you shortly after they arrive. Don't hesitate to contact us if you need to receive your item(s) by a specific delivery date or if the order is urgent.

Delivery periods and dates are given in good faith but are not the subject of any warranty or condition. The Company does not accept any liability if delivery periods or dates are not met for any reason whatsoever. 


Suppose an item in your order is out of stock. In that case, we will advise/discuss whether you would like part shipment immediately or to wait until the entire order is available.

Non-delivery must be advised within 7 days and in writing to enable us to claim from the carrier.


Any shortage or damage on delivery must be reported to us immediately and confirmed in writing within 3 days. 

You agree to inform us of delivery difficulties at the point of order and agree to waive any additional charges levied on us due to delivery difficulties. We will assume (unless informed) that delivery can be made on a 17-tonne vehicle with level access for pallet delivery. Unfortunately for insurance reasons, we can only deliver to the ground floor.


Delivery charges are subject to variation without notice.

We reserve the right to apply extra delivery costs for delivery to areas outside England, Wales, and Scotland's South Eastern areas.

We shall not be held liable for any consequences of delayed delivery, loss, damage, or non-delivery that we are unrecoverable by the carrier.

A Proof of Delivery from the courier shall be taken as proof of delivery to your premises. We are not accountable for any failure of delivery where there is Proof of Delivery provided by the courier.


Clients will be entirely responsible for all goods left safe upon your instructions. This will be deemed proof of delivery.

There is nobody present to sign for the delivery. The shipment may be held at your local depot and attempted to deliver the following day again. Suppose the second attempted delivery is still not successful. In that case, the goods will be taken back to the depot and returned to Mellcrest. The customer agrees to indemnify us against any charges levied on us for the return of the goods. We will delay re-despatch to you until you have reimbursed us for the unauthorised return.
